"Royal Wind"

Designed by Carlene Harwick, Royal Wind is an ANG Workshop by Mail for the first half of 2010.  http://www.needlepoint.org/byMail/index.php

Color changes, small design changes, and all the mistakes are mine alone. ;) Stitched January - February 2010 on congress cloth with DMC floss and spools and spools and spools of Kreinik Metallics.

The center is an acrylic gem from Michael's - clear with a silver foil backing that gives color. I looked on ebay for days at all the different emeralds, sapphires, etc, through all the craft stores and a couple of really nice bead stores. I found this one towards the end of my search. Swarovski makes prettier stuff but not as big.

This was a really interesting piece to stitch - all of the threads are laid with a laying tool and there are long straight stitches in gold that are couched down with the different colored flosses.
